Primary Head of Mathematics and Specialist Mathematics Teacher
An exciting opportunity to join a pioneering school in north London.
Ark John Keats Academy aims to provide pupils from Nursery to Sixth Form with a highly effective and enjoyable education. Our approach is underpinned by our six pillars:
A Mastery Curriculum
High Quality Teaching
Raising Aspirations & Enrichment
Developing Education Leaders
This is an exciting stage in the academy’s development as we continue to grow towards full capacity. We currently have pupils from Nursery to Year 5 and Years 7 to 11.
The academy staff, pupils and parents are incredibly aligned, committed and passionate about our school. We have been graded as outstanding in all areas by Ofsted and pupils make rapid progress in our calm, purposeful and happy environment.
We are very enthusiastic about the unique teaching model we are developing for our Key Stage 2 phase which came into effect in September 2016 for our founding Year 3 cohort. The model has been developed in line with our pillars and is aimed at providing pupils in the primary phase with high quality specialist subject teaching. Now we are looking to recruit a Primary Head of Mathematics to join our team. The role will involve being the Head of Mathematics for the whole of the primary phase and teaching specialist maths lessons in Key stage 2. We want our Head of Mathematics to develop a truly outstanding mathematics curriculum and work alongside teachers to deliver this in a highly effective way; teaching and modelling excellent mathematics teaching, co-planning and coaching.
This is a wonderful opportunity to be a member of a school that is breaking the mould by giving pupils from relatively disadvantaged backgrounds a type and standard of education previously the preserve of the best fee-paying schools., enabling primary and secondary specialists to work together in creating a content-rich, cumulative and coherent curriculum across phases.
Our ideal candidate will be an outstanding teacher with a very strong interest in mathematics. We would very much like to hear from you if you share our vision, values and enthusiasm. We are very happy to talk about the post informally if you require more information.
